Examining α-Helical Proteins

  title={Examining α-Helical Proteins},
  author={Tim Skern},
The possibilities of packing α-helices are limited. The α-helices of a protein must be arranged so that the closely packed side-chains do not clash sterically and that their chemical properties are compatible. The packing of α-helices of closely related proteins can be very similar; however, slight variations and the presence of different amino acids can lead to different properties and functions. First, we will investigate the structure of three DNA-binding proteins that have α-helices in an… CONTINUE READING
